VecMulti is designed and loaded for use in an actual Vectrex/光速船 / Kousokusen video game system console using the cartridge slot. Usage for any other purpose including loading the SD card into an emulation platform is not guaranteed to work. No support will be provided for use in any device other a real and properly functioning Vectrex / 光速船 / Kousokusen video game system console with VecMulti inserted into the system console cartridge slot.

Compatible with, and for play in, all regions of the Vectrex video game system by Milton Bradley (MB), General Consumer Electronics (GCE), and Bandai バンダイ (光速船 / Kousokusen). Vectrex games, Controllers, 3D Imagers, and other accessories are not region specific to a particular Vectrex console. The manual language printing (Canada dual / Europe multi / Japan), box printing (Canada dual / Europe multi / Japan), and overlay printing (Japan) are the only differences.

The Vectrex is a classic 1982 vector graphics based video game system created by Smith Engineering and General Consumer Electronics (GCE). Later purchased and marketed by Milton Bradley (MB) as well as licensed for distribution and sale in Japan by Bandai. Made in 1982, 1983, and 1984.
